Portraits Prep Guide

It is helpful to let the kids know that they’re going to have fun while getting their pictures taken. No need to be perfect. I'll capture mostly candids instead of poses! 

If they aren’t great at meeting new people, bring along their favorite toy (as long as you don’t mind it being in pics). You may want to mention me a couple days before to get them used to the idea, such as, "Lindsey is going to take your pictures with a camera soon!"

Mom/Dad I encourage you tickle, kiss cheeks, act silly, or jump up & down behind me to make them giggle! :) 

Prepping younger kids


Some locations may have limited parking, so please make time to park and walk to our shooting location. 

Don't worry about how you will pose! I got you covered! Just be yourselves & I'll guide you through. I do posing that will naturally lead to candid moments, which are my favorite! If you catch me taking pics while you are not paying attention, go with it!!! Interact with each other like I'm not there. :) 

Limited Parking

Please arrive a few minutes before you scheduled session. If you’re late, you will only have what remaining time you have for your time slot. 

This is a guide to help you prepare for your session,
so you know what to expect! :)

What to wear?

Choose something you feel great in

Keep your colors simple

Coordinate colors

Of course, choose comfort over anything! Wear what you feel you look great in!

When choosing your outfits, try to keep them simple. To have more of a light and airy look, choose colors such as, whites, neutrals, and pastel colors.

Also, it's best to avoid any heavy patterns, such as plaid or other designs, which helps keep the focus on you and/or your family.

If you are taking pictures with your family, its best to try to color coordinate. It's a good idea to choose colors that compliment one another, without being too "matchy matchy".
